Speaker Spotlight: Laura Keyser

Content, Coordination, Collaboration

That’s not only a lot of C’s, but also the subject of the roundtable I’ll be leading at this year’s Building Content Summit.  “Coordination Between Disciplines” (Friday, July 19 at 3:00) is an offshoot from a BILT 2018 panel discussion of the same name.  While moderating the panel, it was clear that several topics addressed were deep enough to stand as their own sessions for Digital Built Week 2019.

Most of us would agree that well-developed content in a building model can add value for team members throughout design and construction.  Content with accurate information and dimensions may highlight design coordination issues early in a project.  Content developed collaboratively with consultants may eliminate duplicate modeling efforts.  Content modeled by a trade partner with field knowledge may illustrate coordination items before field installation.  After gaining insight on content and coordination, I’ll be turning around and leading a BILT presentation “BEP to PEP” (Saturday, July 20 at 10:45) for the second offshoot from last year’s panel discussion. 

As much as I love talking with fellow BIM enthusiasts about modeling, software, workflows, content, and planning, I always try to take some extra time after BILT to do some exploring around the event location.   I’m taking advantage of this year’s venue to spend a few technology-free days on the Olympic Peninsula (see featured image). 

See you in Seattle!

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.
